We had a friend over for dinner, and cooked a delicious duck magret [1]. If anyone is interested, here is the recipe. It actually feeds four people rather than three.

A quick and delicious way to prepare duck magret
  • 2 duck magrets (350-400g total)
  • 2 tablespoons liquid honey
  • 2 tablespoons toasted sesame oil
  1. Carve grooves into the magrets with a knife, to let the marinade penetrate better, and marinate for about 30 minutes.
  2. Fish the meat out, set it in a frying pan over medium heat for 3-4 minutes on each side, until the pan is full of grease. Pour out the grease, deglaze the pan with a little hot water, and put the meat back in, as well as the marinade. Wait a few minutes for the sauce to thicken.
  3. Grill 2 tablespoons sesame seeds in a dry pan over high heat (careful, they burn fast).
  4. Slice the meat in small, artistic amounts, and serve with the sesame seeds and a little of the sauce.
  5. This goes wonderfully with homemade mashed potatoes.


[1]Not Thanksgiving fare, I know, but then I don’t exactly celebrate. I hope everyone who is celebrating is having a fabulous time, though.
